Since the early 1900’s medicine has graduated more medical doctors, done more research, developed more medications and technology, and prescribed more drugs than ever before, and yet chronic disease has continued to grow at rapid rates. It’s obvious now that conventional medicine doesn’t work for chronic disease. Cellular Medicine is a different approach to care that addresses the root cause of a disease, rather than simply relying on drugs to temporarily reduce symptoms. Cellular Medicine corrects the misalignment between our bodies and our environment through diet and lifestyle prescriptions. Cellular Medicine is the future of healthcare, available today.

The need for Cellular Medicine is greater today than ever before. Chronic disease is blowing up. Six out of 10 adults now suffer from chronic disease, and four in 10 have two or more conditions. Every year, for the past 3 years – life expectancy has dropped with heart disease and cancer being the leading causes of death. Today, more prescriptions are filled than ever before. Medicine is supposed to make us healthier not sicker.

Today, we have more technology, all sorts of sophisticated scans, and costly medical procedures, and yet the disease continues to grow exponentially.

People now take more medications and undergo more surgeries than ever before and yet, we continue to die and suffer from higher obesity, hormonal imbalances, loss of sex drive, plummeting testosterone levels & unmanageable diseases. It’s clear that more medications and more surgery are not the answer.

That’s Why Cellular Medicine is important.

Cellular Medicine is what healthcare should be.  Cellular Medicine is a root cause, holistic, patient-centered, collaborative approach to healthcare.

A Cellular Medicine approach to your health combines ancestral health strategies born in nature, which align our bodies in a more genetically congruent way with our environment, and shifts the focus from treating diseases and symptoms; to preventing them from developing in the first place.

The Cellular Medicine approach deals directly with the underlying cause of a health issue and treats each patient as a whole, unique individual.

Rather than simply prescribing a blood pressure pill to lower blood pressure, Cellular Medicine doctors want to find out why your blood pressure is high and correct that.

Cellular Medicine offers a disruptive new system of lab assessment, treatment and prevention of weight gain, hormonal imbalances & chronic diseases to replace the old, outdated and ineffective conventional medical model.

Cellular Medicine incorporates the latest in natural whole food nutrition, diet and lifestyle, genetic sciences, and systems biology to influence the progression of a disease.

Cellular Medicine Practitioners are not here to replace lifesaving critical care provided by conventional medicine. Rather, we work together with other medical doctors, personal trainers, nurses, health coaches, nutritionists, and other health providers to support our patients as they make their journey toward optimum health.

So what’s the difference between cellular and conventional medicine?

While the Cellular Medicine approach is all about preventing or reversing chronic diseases, the conventional approach focuses on disease management. This means that the goal is to usually suppress symptoms with a drug or medical procedure, rather than encouraging the expression of true health at the root level. For example, whenever an individual takes a medication, they may experience a temporary change in the symptoms such as lower blood pressure, but that rarely translates into improved long-term health. Those meds rarely address the root cause of the problem and instead, cover up symptoms and suppress key bodily functions, leading to unintended negative side effects.

Here’s how it typically works in conventional medicine :

A person with high blood pressure sits through a Dr’s appointment that often consists of approximately 15 actual minutes with the physician. This person will inevitably leave the appointment with a prescription for a new drug to lower blood pressure. After that, he or she is on their own until the next appointment. Nothing was done to understand the cause of what’s elevating the blood pressure. There was no deep dive into diet, lifestyle, or nutrient deficiencies. This process will go on for years but the more important question is whether or not this person is healthier for it?

Several years later, if this person gets off their blood pressure medication, what do you think will happen? Most likely, their blood pressure will go back up because nothing was done to correct the problem. Conventional medicine divides doctors based on their specialties. This creates a divided and isolated medical environment for individual patients.

A Cellular Medicine approach is different.

Cellular Medicine physicians are holistic and look at all aspects of an individuals health. They take the time to investigate and uncover what is causing the health problem in question. And based on the information obtained, a cellular medicine doctor determines which diet, lifestyle, and environmental treatments could help. Cellular Medicine is different than Conventional Medicine because it recognizes the mental, spiritual, emotional & vibrational aspects of diseases

What a Cellular Medicine Doctor Does;

The first step is to undergo an initial health assessment, typically lasting anywhere from 60 to 120 minutes. The initial consult also includes labs & a comprehensive health history (not just a medical history), but a deep dive into your life and what you are all about. What’s important to understand is the interpretation is different from that of a conventional medical doctor. In addition to blood chemistry analysis, we also specialize in Digestive Health assessments, Advanced Nutrient Profile Analysis including measuring vitamins and minerals, amino acids, organic acids and brain chemistry.

Finally, there are specialized tests to measure hormone levels, food sensitivity and intolerance and your genetic impact on the high body fat,excessive weight & the development of disease. Taking all the information is just the beginning. Simply measuring is not enough. The true power comes from the analysis and interpretation. Where conventional medical doctors reviews labs in light of symptoms, Cellular Medicine doctors are trained to take a systems based approach, which allows them to see into root causes more. A Cellular Medicine Physician  will also take the time to review all the data and begin recommending personalized lifestyle, diet and fitness changes.

Often times basic blood chemistry will reveal big  problems that have haunted an individual for decades. Sometimes we find chronic, low grade digestive infections. Other times, we find imbalances in the microbiome, nutrient deficiencies and imbalanced brain chemistry. In addition to the initial findings and recommendations, a good cellularl medicine doctor will reassess a few months down the road. This helps to determine if the initial treatment plan and recommendations are working. And once you see improvements, you can begin working on additional health enhancing factors.

Does Insurance Cover Cellular Medicine?

The immediate answer is, “No!”.

The primary reason why Cellular Medicine is not covered by insurance, is because most insurance policies only pay for disease management and therefore are not interested in identifying the root cause of your health problems. Like a comedienne said “Conventional medicine sees no money in curing diseases”. For this reason, many Cellular Medicine practices decide to not accept insurance. An insurance free practice has many advantages over those practices who take insurance including:

The absolute best care. Being “insurance free” allows physicians to recommend the most advanced therapies and testing available. The insurance model tends to keep doctors stuck in the current “standard of lower care” because that is what’s reimbursed. Customized Care. In cellular medicine, physicians base treatments on the best possibility for an individual to get better taking into account your personal genetics, diet and lifestyle factors. Whereas insurance companies decide what treatments are going to be reimbursed, which then dictates what an “insurance doctor” prescribes.

Time. Insurance reimburses doctors based on time and they don’t like it when a doctor bills for large amounts of it. This is a primary reason why an “insurance” based visit is short. Compare that to 45-120 minutes spent with cellular medicine doctors. All that said, Cellular Medicine physicians try to help their patients as much as possible when it comes to insurance. In some instances, you can absolutely use your insurance.

For example:

Insurance may offset some of the costs of lab testing. It may not cover 100% of the labs that a cellular medicine doctor will want ordered, but you can certainly use your insurance for a part of it. It really depends on your specific insurance plan including deductible and co-pays. Also, if you have an FSA or HSA (or related flex spending account), then you can absolutely apply your balance to the cost of all Cellular Medicine visits and procedures.

Insurance is great to have for emergency or critical care. But the reality is, it’s not going to pay for you to be healthy. For chronic health conditions, insurance is all but useless. It will cover medications (if you’re into that), but even then, not 100%. The reality is, we need to take back control of our own health and not put it in the hands of the government or an insurance company. Relying on an industry that is not designed to heal the body is really setting yourself up to stay overweight & ill.
